Heat Seeking Revenge Over LeBron's Cavs

LeBron James will be taking his talents to South Beach once again Saturday when his Cleveland Cavaliers invade American Airlines Arena to take on his former team, the Miami Heat. Going back to when LeBron was a member of the Heat, Cleveland is 0-9 SU in their last nine games versus Miami.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 16-5 in the Heat's last 21 overall.
  • The Heat are 1-6-1 ATS in their last 8 Saturday games.
  • Cavaliers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games playing on 0 days rest.

James won't be exactly fresh for the contest, however. The King played 45 minutes in Friday's overtime loss to the New Orleans Pelicans, collecting 37 points and eight assists. Miami (11-6 SU) has once again emerged as an Eastern Conference power without James and would love nothing more than to exact some revenge against the NBA's top player in front of their hometown fans.

The Cavs have been far from a safe bet on the road, going 1-6 ATS in their last seven games away from home.
